Heritage Rolls Out Upgraded "First Principles" Website

First Principles Website Has Been Upgraded
I'm proud to announce the launch of a brand new upgraded website that will hopefully become your first stop to learn about our nation's founding principles. The new site organizes all of our published materials in a user-friendly format centered on key themes, like the American Founding, Constitutional Government, Progressivism and Liberalism, and Conservatism.

Dr. Matt Spalding, Hon. Ed Meese and the other esteemed Heritage staff featured in the Experts section at the bottom of the page will be adding and expanding the material as they continue to build out the site.

Sign up for the weekly New Common Sense newsletter easily at the top of the page.  Peruse our excellent set of videos by clicking on the Videos tab. Access historical documents on the Primary Sources tab.  Read Heritage's best essay, books, and publications on the Our Publications tab.

Please take a few minutes to look around the page. I’m sure you’ll find a wealth of interesting material. Feel free to relay your ideas and recommendations to me. And don’t forget to tell your friends.
